Origin : Found in North America.
Background : Frostweed’s name derives from its love of frost on its roots in early winter. It has been used herbally for ulcers.

Remedy Profile : Cistus is most appropriate for those who are frightened and stressed. Mental stress often aggravates their physical symptoms. Extremely sensitive to cold air, they tend to feel cold sensations all over the body. Their illnesses are generally affected by the seasons, becoming worse in winter.
Cistus is used mainly for frequent colds, tonsillitis, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic or recurrent sinusitis, and allergic rhinitis. Typical symptoms include thick, yellowy catarrh, a runny nose, and violent sneezing. The throat is dry and feels sore if even small amounts of cold air are inhaled.
Another key symptom associated with Cistus is glandular swelling and hardening, particularly in the neck, and possibly with concurrent respiratory symptoms. It may be due to infection or even cancer.
